Patient Care - Sports Medicine
Patient Care, with emphasis in Sports Medicine, teaches academic and technical skills necessary for a plethora of health careers. Students learn to help peers improve their athletic performance, recover from injury, and prevent future injuries. Sports Medicine is a fast-growing health care field because health workers who specialize in sports medicine help many “regular” people in addition to athletes. Sports medicine is a subspecialty of emergency medicine, family medicine, internal medicine, and pediatrics.
